Introducing the Cast of Characters – Part One

Sword Coast Legends Previews - By William Murphy on October 16, 2015

Introducing the Cast of Characters – Part One

It’s been kept pretty tightly under wraps, but the Sword Coast Legends single-player campaign is tied closely to WotC’s overall plans with D&D. To get you prepped for the cast of characters you’re going to meet with the story, we’ve got these exclusive bios of the cast. Today we’re meeting four of the eight main characters you’ll fight alongside. So buckle up and dig in!




Growing up as the son of bakers in the small village of Red Larch, Belamy Lightfingers never had the temperament for the family business. When he came of age, Belamy chose to turn his back on his humble beginnings and find fortune elsewhere, and he convinced his sister Bryn to do likewise.

Not long into his less-than-spectacular adventuring career, Belamy realized that his particularly strong combat skills weren’t enough. He needed support. He was in Mirabar when he learned of the Order of the Burning Dawn, and he found himself very interested in the idea of wielding a blade to do good… and make a little gold in the process. He tracked down his sister Bryn in the Ardeep Forest, and together they joined the Burning Dawn, hoping to find both an outlet for Belamy’s aggression and a replacement for the family they left behind.



The Lightfingers family may not be renowned throughout the land, but that doesn’t stop them from thinking they should be. A clan of Strongheart halflings based in Red Larch, a small village north of Waterdeep, the Lightfingers built a reputation for some of the finest crumblecakes in the region. When Bryn and her hotheaded brother Belamy came of age, however, they scorned their family’s baking traditions for a more perilous road: That of the adventurer.

Bryn Lightfingers trained among the rangers of the Ardeep Forest until she and her band were chased out by the Eldreth Veluuthra. She used her wilderness skills to survive on her own until her brother Belamy approached her about joining an adventurers’ guild known as the Order of the Burning Dawn. While she shares her brother’s tendency toward a quick temper, her curiosity and open mind made her a valuable member of the Order. These days, most consider her leadership material, as long as she can keep her Lightfingers attitude in check.



It takes a lot for a young wizard to be exiled from Longsaddle, the home of the famously eccentric Harpell wizards, but Hommet Shaw managed to pull it off. He’s a very talented wizard, but his attention to detail leaves something to be desired… to say the least. He’s young, and eager, and desperate to prove himself, but, well, necromancy isn’t the most widely accepted magical specialty, and it’s hard to find a mentor who won’t go all “Dine upon the fearsome hatred of the DEAD!” on you. When he sees a chance to accompany the heroes into battle, he takes it as a chance to prove himself… and make some friends in the bargain.



A moon-elf cleric of Sehanine Moonbow, Illydia has seen more pain and loss in her 140 years than even most elves see in a lifetime, but her faith in Sehanine Moonbow (a goddess of the moon and dreams) keeps her mind centered and her heart hopeful. With her ever-loyal friend and bodyguard Larethar by her side, she uses her talents with a bow and her goddess’ blessings to make up for her own past mistakes.
